I like their weather page. Laid out nice, it's the one I use. SO I go there to see the forecast, and I get:

We are currently experiencing an unusually large amount of Web searches.
Please try your search again.

Ah. So, there's too many people using the service. Hmmmm.

Really? How many? 10,000? 20,000?

Sorry, we get billions of searches a year. Yes, real ones. Don't be sheep. Try something new and better.

I really like (and use) Ask News, Wx, Sports, and News. Like Ask News much beter than Google News, to be honest.

Can I have an Ask.com T-shirt? <I live in the East Bay and can come by and pick it up.>

They've added to the already impressive AskCity...not only can you draw on the map, now you can search in a selected area. Just draw a circle around the area and search in it!

Alright Shepherd, tell us sheep how you are better. Because if by woefully out of date and stale you mean better, then I'd say you are better, but if you've some actual data to back up better I'm all ears. And the "new" wore off long ago.

This sheep doesn't fall for slogans or 30 second commercials I need proof.

Maybe I'll even unblock you from robots.txt.
